    A few challenging phrases. Focus on good tone production. Having the pick surface perpendicular to the string is a good starting point. Sometimes, you can attack the string at a slight angle and you will get a warmer tone. This doesn't sound good on the low D string because of the string windings, but on the unwound strings, you can get some soft and sweet sounds.
